    Where is this story? I read that they will keep all three.

    That's even more illogical to do. You are going to go with 3 RB AND have Cam Newton? Tolbert's pretty much going to be used a lot less than he was in SD.

    Denver is looking to trade a running back.

    Any takers?

    Miami and Jacksonville would be logical destinations but it would be a very expensive backup QB. There are rumors that Philadelphia or (wait for it....) New England could be destinations.

    Laron Landry to the Jets. The jacked Safety who has had some injury problems now leaves the Redskins defense. In other news, the Redskins secondary, is severely weakened.

    Woohoo :), no more Jackson to complain about here week after week. I really hope Flynn works out here because even when we had Hasselbeck I never thought of him as a championship callibre quarterback.

    But look at your own sentence. Remember what happened last time we took a backup QB from Green Bay? ;) :sly:

    I know, but I don't see any reports of anyone on the block. I think Tolbert is insurance for Fine China Williams.

    Welcome back to Florida, Tebow...

    Then again, my Dolphins need anyone as QB right now, since they're not trading up in the draft order.

    Pouncey and Tebow have played together. Jaguars have got to be desperate to fill that stadium...

    Even though I'm a Chargers fan,I'm glad to see Manning go to the Broncos as well.I felt sorry for Elway having to put up with that so called QB Tim Tebow.Tebow Time is over for sure.I could see Tebow being a backup somewhere,but I doubt he will ever be a starter again.

    Apparently the Fins got to strike 3 and now signed David Garrard.

    I do like Mike Tolbert as a player, but the Panthers are no longer the run heavy team they were 2/3 years ago under John Fox, I really don't see the need for 3 RB's. Unless of course they are planning on using him as a FB then it does makes a little more sense.

    So apparently, the Dolphins are cutting Yeremiah Bell for Garrard.:grumpy:

    It's getting harder and harder to be a Dolphins fan, and they've been my team ever since I was old enoungh to understand football (+/- 22 years.)

    You bitch. :lol:


    :banghead:

    Did YBell deserve to make the money he would have made this year? No. Did he deserve to be cut? HELL NO. Our secondary is piss garbage.

    I don't know if its possible but Miami may finish worse than it did last year.

    Starkly bad for Barkley, lad!

    I have a feeling the Tannehill stuff is all a smokescreen for a Weeden trade down.

    Who needs a good record when you had the dance moves the Dolphins had last year?

    That is a good point...

    It's going to be awfully weird seeing Manning in a Broncos uniform and I think 95 million is a tad too much for a guy of his age and recent injuries.


    Edit:

    Apparently the Broncos retired number 18 when they were in the AFL for a guy that only played 4 years for them? He publicly announced today that he doesn't mind if Manning wears it.

    The dance includes skipping over draft talent, twisting words around, tip-toeing around serious questions, shaking off good players, and leading us down a path towards anonymity.

    Bell was pretty good, very dependable on third down plays.

    2012: Return of the Aints.

    2012: Return of the media hungry Jets as opposed to the rational ones. Jets trade 4th and 6th rounders to Denver for Tebow and a 7th. (Maybe?)

    This is going to end badly for the Jets. I see a 7-9 season plus finishing behind the Bills.

    EDIT: Trade has hit a snag and it may be axed.

    In other news, BJGE is now a Bengal.

    Manning's contract is amazing. CMvan, read the fine print on it. Only the first year of the contract at 18M is guaranteed. The rest of the length of the contract, he has to pass a physical at the start of the season before he gets paid. That's amazing to me, and shows what the NFL has gotten right. As an NHL fan, it's amazing to me that Peyton Manning only has one year guaranteed of his contract, while the Canadiens are carrying some real albatrosses that are all guaranteed for decent players. Tomas Kaberle, a power play specialist who won't even be on Montreal's 1st wave power play is guaranteed $4.25M for each of the next two years. How does he get a guaranteed contract and Peyton Manning, one of the greatest of all time doesn't? Even the goons in the NHL are all guaranteed to make at least $525k.

    Also, again as a hockey fan without much experience in football, the Tebow trade seems to be a bit of a low return to me. A 4th round pick? How common is it for a 4th round pick to become a legitimate NFL player? I know in hockey the odds drop to around 30% in the 2nd round, and then drop quickly after that, but what about the average 4th rounder in the NFL draft? I know Tebow's numbers aren't spectacular, but he does seem to be at least a decent starting QB on a weaker team (correct me if I'm wrong), and a 4th rounder seems low to be the big piece going back for Tebow.

    Oh and the trade is likely not to go through now. Tebow's rookie contract had a "kick back" clause of $5 million+ to be paid to Denver.

    It seems the Rams will trade for Tebow if the deal with New York fails.

    Wow that is very harsh punishment. I've never heard of anything like this before though so I suppose precedent is set now.

    Pretty disgusting they paid for "knock outs" and "cart offs" as that is intentionally hurting somebody... Big hits are one thing but intentionally injuring is an entirely different matter.
